Chris Cammack grew up on a cattle ranch in western South Dakota working on the prairie. As a young man he quickly developed a love for the outdoors. At age four, if someone would have asked him Chris would have said that he was going to be a taxidermist when he grew up. At the age of nine he won a purple ribbon in the 4-H contest at the South Dakota state fair with his first piece of taxidermy.

Chris was outdoors observing nature, hunting and fishing during most of his free time growing up. The summer of Chris` Sophomore year he started his own Lawn Irrigation Business. For the next six years during the summer he would hire on employees and they would put in sprinkler systems, and do sprinkler maintenance.

Upon high school graduation, Chris attended the Montana School of Taxidermy were he studied under master Taxidermist Tony Ward, who specializes in habitats for taxidermy. Chris quickly became interested in learning more about building artificial mountains in trophy rooms. Returning home to his family`s ranch at Union Center SD he built his own studio and began his successful career in taxidermy.

His studio, Prairie Mountain Wildlife Studio, quickly became known for quality taxidermy work. Within a year of being home he had enough work to hire on a full time employee. Before long he had two full time employees working in the taxidermy shop allowing Chris to follow his dreams of making mountains. He studied mountain construction between taxidermy jobs, learning the traditional way of making mountains.

Searching for a better way to make realistic, lightweight rocks, Chris approached an artificial waterfall company, who had molds of real rocks that they sprayed FRC into, about using polyurea to spray into the molds. This technique proved very effective in making rocks that are tough, light weight and extremely real looking.

After two years of working with Rico Rock, Chris was able to buy the other half of the business and start building trophy rooms using the rocks he was manufacturing. People have not overlooked the extreme detail in Chris` artificial rocks and habitats and because of that, Chris and his crew have traveled all over the country building trophy rooms.
